When you eventually get off the couch or bed to begin a workout, you won’t be pleased with mediocre results. You begin a session wanting to get the most out of every rep, sprint, and set so that the hour you put in is worthwhile. But that isn’t always the case, especially if you’re working out while hungry, skipping sessions, or going to your home gym without a plan.
Warm up wisely
A lengthy, ineffective warm-up can sap energy and unnecessarily lengthen an exercise session. Warm up swiftly and efficiently instead. Make sure you just spend a short amount of time on treadmills or foam rollers.
Make use of a foam roller
Fitness professionals recommend this lightweight cylindrical tube of compressed foam for strengthening flexibility, stamina, and relieving aching muscles. “Spend time foam rolling, mobilizing, and stretching your muscles before engaging in any type of exercise to ensure you’re not sacrificing form or range of motion,” Master says.
Much is dependent on how we anticipate our body to function throughout an exercise. When our priorities and schedules do not allow us adequate time, we should make our workouts simple and uncomplicated. We must link our reality with our expectations to make every workout matter!
